I worked my tush off last week to make more ornaments and now they are in my etsy shop.
Here is my blue jay peeking out of my friend's Christmas tree...

I can't even express how happy I am to be home after the One of a Kind show. Great show, totally exhausting, we missed our little dog like crazy. Thanks to everyone who came out. I am scrambling to make some more ornaments (my Santa, Blue Jay, Cardinal and Snowman ornaments all sold out during the show) and list them in my etsy shop. I am hoping to have them ready by early next week (December 10th-ish) at the latest. If you would like to be notified when they are available online please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line 'ornaments.'

I've been working on new small linoprints and here they are, a growling bear, a little gnome smoking a pipe, a scruffy orange cat (also printed some in black), and a lady wearing a garden dress. Also made a new ornament this year, a blue jay.

I keep saying that I'm not going to make cute things anymore. And then something like this happens. This is probably the CUTEST THING I'VE EVER MADE. I love porcelain dogs and I have a small collection including some spaghetti poodles. This is a small linoprint I made of one of them.

This is what my desk looks like right now. I always end up working in a tiny space as the entire desk gets crowded with junk that I just push aside instead of cleaning up. 48 days until the One of a Kind show. Yikes. I'm working on some small linoprints. I haven't done any printmaking since last fall.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Queen West Art Crawl this weekend. Good times, beautiful weather, and one of the best parks for cute dog stalking. Too bad our little fella couldn't come with us. Too much attitude.

I participated in Kathryn McHolm's show last year and had a wonderful time... a very talented group of artists and craftspeople in the most beautiful setting. The show takes place this weekend, July 21st and 22nd, in Welcome, Ontario:

I have been hibernating in my shop since January, emerging only for refills of wine and snacks. I have become completely addicted to painting with gouache. I have a series of new paintings and I'm finally ready to share. I'll be showing at Love of Mine Boutique for the month of May. Details right here:

It's been a long time since my last post so I'll start 2012 with a good one. I'm pleased to say that due to sales of my Nature Conservancy prints I was able to donate $150 back to the organization! I donate $5 from each sale back to the N.C.C. so thanks to everyone who has purchased these prints.
